Message from GKN on 22/02/18 


The Work Experience programme at GKN Aerospace Filton has been dramatically revamped from as-was.   Previously, the reviews may have included words such as ‘dull’ or ‘not very interactive’, but this new schedule has been designed specifically to be more engaging, interesting and interactive for the students visiting.

 It will be more hands-on, with your students coming away with articles they have actually made within our workshop.  Additionally, our Apprentices will act as a “Buddy” for each Work Experience placement, making the whole experience more ‘relevant’ for students.

 The schedule consists of

     Composite Car Manufacture

     Create Paint Kettle from sheet metal

     Tour of site  (much shorter tours, compared to previous itinerary)

 The best news of all is that we have spaces available on the following weeks, so if any of your students are still without a Work Experience placement, they can be accommodated with us:

 19th March

9th April

23rd April

7th May

4th June

18th June

25th June

 If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to get in contact.

The University of Bristol


The University of Bristol Faculty of Engineering is offering the opportunity for some talented and fantastic Year 10 and 11 pupils to take part in Work Experience Week at the end of June. The week will involve seminars, hands-on challenges and exploration of our latest research and state-of-the-art labs to help students get a powerful understanding of life at university. The students will also be given the opportunity to talk to our current engineering students about what university life is like, what they can study and what kind of jobs might interest them after university.

 We are looking for students who want to make a difference in the world, who are interested in technology and how it will affect our future and who are thinking about studying A-Level Mathematics after GCSEs. The University of Bristol is proud to encourage and support more women in engineering fields at university and beyond, and as some of the world’s best mathematicians, engineers and technologists are female we are particularly keen to find girls interested in any of our engineering or computing subjects to take part. We aim to allocate an even number of work-experience places to male/female applicants each year.

 Please ask any students you think may be interested in Work Experience Week to fill out this form.
